Works on Hope
April 28, 2017 at 7:30 pm–10:00 pm
Luciana Souza & Guillermo Klein with the MIT Wind Ensemble, MIT Festival Jazz Ensemble, and MIT Vocal Jazz Ensemble.
Two of South America’s greatest jazz artists, Luciana Souza and Guillermo Klein, join the MIT Wind Ensemble, MIT Festival Jazz Ensemble and MIT Vocal Jazz Ensemble in creating innovative new compositions and arrangements. The performance will represent the culmination of Klein’s and Souza’s MIT residency and a semester-long exploration of their music by the three MIT student ensembles. The evening’s highlight will be the world premiere of “Works on Hope” by Klein for Souza and the MIT Wind Ensemble under the direction of Fred Harris.
During the 7:30pm pre-concert talk, Vocal Jazz Ensemble director Liz Tobias and select MIT students will discuss collaborating with Souza and Klein, the rationale behind the project, and the challenges and rewards of developing new works remotely and onsite with guest artists.
$10 General Admission; $5 for MIT faculty, staff, and community members; free in advance for MIT students.
